There’s a reason dogs have earned themselves the title of man’s best friend.

When this man’s wife passed away, he was left to live by himself… or so he thought. After a while, his children thought he might enjoy having a dog around to take care of and to help keep him company – they were right!

They surprised him with a large black dog they adopted from a shelter, and it was just like love at first sight. Their dad may be getting older, but that doesn’t stop him from playing around with his new energetic best friend, even when the pup gets the zoomies. When that happens, he just dances along to match his energy!

Watch these two besties having fun in the adorable video below and don’t forget to share.
